You'll need a different tweeter if you want a 10" 2-way.
The tweeter will have to be able to play to around 1kHz cleanly. To get that low requires a very robust dome unit, a compression driver, or a very large ribbon/planar. The candidates in the ribbon/dome areas I could likely count on one hand, and literally dwarf the budget you likely have given yourself.

In short- please don't do this.
Later,
Wolf

In that case you could look at some midwoofer type drivers, giving up a little low freq extension because you'll get it back later. This way you'll get a faster driver that will play mids more accurately, can xo at 2-3khz, and probably also pick up some efficiency. Something more like a pro audio driver would make sense plus you'll not have trouble finding 4ohm.

I wonder if 9ne could overcome the beaming issue by having the two 10s angled slightly toward opposite sides. How bout having one rear firing so that reflected sound can fill in the dispersion pattern?

There appears to be a misunderstanding of power ratings here. The 140W RMS power rating of the woofer simply indicates the maximum power it can handle.

Your B&K AV 125.5 amp of power rating 125W RMS @ 8 ohm per channel will not be overloaded by the speaker.
